Gang violence key issue in El Salvador vote

Salvadorians will elect a new president on Sunday, after a month where 31 bodies were found in 21 different locations.

    As Salvadorians head to the polls to elect a new president, gang violence is on voters' minds.

    In the past month, forensic scientists discovered 31 bodies in 21 different locations in one neighbourhood controlled by one gang.
